In this colorful activity you can see many learning skills. Giant pipe cleaners are awesome for many play ideas. I know it might be quite difficult to be able to find giant ones but no worries normal pipe cleaners also works great for this activity.
Who loves handmade rugs? It has been very nice sewing practice for us.
We will be happy to see your creations if you give it a go. Don’t forget that pre-holes make it easier and more fun for little ones to practice sewing. Just grab your favorite color of yarn and cut a piece of cardboard, then start to design.
Creating DIY decorations is always too much fun. Cut a circle from cardboard and make holes around this circle. Cut long strips of fabric and thread them through the holes and knot them.
Some activities are great for many kids from age 1 to 7 or even more. This activity is one of them. You can start with your 1 yo just by putting pompoms in holes randomly. You can add tongs to make it more difficult for your 2 yo and add simple colors for 3 yo and color patterns for 4-5 yo and then add more holes and longer patterns for 6 it goes on like this. Briefly, It’s up to you to make it easier and harder.

It is our job to find the most fun way to strengthen our little one’s muscles. I love to prepare activities that I have fun at least as much as my children. 🙂 “Mom, please can I play a little, too?” I like to hear this sentence very much. 🙂
If your kid has just begin to sit, then it is time to prepare a busy bin for him/her. Either you can directly put big toys into a bin for your baby or you can use yarn/rubber bands to wrap the bin to keep the busy moments longer for your toddler. It can be an amazing sibling fun, too.
Spring is the best time to observe nature and see the new life of plants growing under melting snow. Blossoms always send us positive energy while sending off long and dark winter days. Make a spring craft to welcome spring.
It helps to develop tiny hand muscles and imagination. You can build your own building. All you need is an empty box and some straws. That’s all. 🏦🏨🏡🏢🏠Cut the straws to the size you want, make small cuts in the middle, then insert the cardboards in the straws. It would be better if you use thin cardboard.
